Back to the drawing board, but literally this time. I’ve just completed my novel The Ghost Swan and am planning on self-publishing it in a very small print run.

White Boy

The miniatures from the project WHITE BOY, are inspired by my 90,000 word novel which is set in Ireland, and tells the story of two teenagers, one living in 1803 and one in 1977. With their lives intertwined with each other’s but also with the raging political conflict of the 1970’s they try to make sense of what is happening around them. Even though Florian Brackfar and Ellis Sabel could never have met, they have come to know each other’s thoughts and feelings intimately.
